  • personally, no. but as long as you take care of yourself the same way you would having the flu and not pregnant, you should be fine. try to keep the fever under control and drink lots of fluid. it may take longer for you to get better since your immune system is weaker now as it has to take care of two :) feel better!

  • Yes I had a 24 hour bug with my son and it sucked, but I was far enough along that the dr said I could have tums if I needed them. Drink lots of fluids if you can and get lots of rest.

  • I'm at the end of mine's been miserable. Doctors put me on bedrest for the weekend b/c when it came on I almost passed out at work. The only thing you can take is tylenol for the fever and chills..

  • I don't think I have the flu because I don't have a fever, just a severe cold but it sucks.
